Linda Ronstadt: The Sound Of My Voice

She broke all the rules.

Linda Ronstadt’s big, luminous voice turned songwriters’ best songs into epics beyond their imaginations. Her artistic drive led her past five consecutive platinum albums to daring choices like performing Gilbert & Sullivan on Broadway and recording an album of Mexican folk songs.

Poster for the music doc Linda Ronstadt: The Sound Of My VoiceWhen she announced in 2013 that Parkinson’s disease had robbed her of the ability to sing, a nation of music fans grieved the loss. The irony of such a beautiful voice being stilled floats over the  the new documentary Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice, in which Ronstadt is captured in vintage clip after vintage clip, singing the hell out of everything she does.
Filmmakers Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman lay out a dizzying cavalcade of vocal performances, woven into a tapestry of Ronstadt and her peers telling her story.
